In love with the Alamo Heights/Terrell Hills/Olmos Park area and looking for a way to break into these coveted communities? We polled several of our top agents and were met with a common theme: new builds may be the perfect place to start.
So, we did your homework for you (pun intended) and compiled just a few reasons to choose a brand-new build over a resale home:
Make each space your own in a newly constructed home. Being involved in construction allows you to put your stamp on finishes within each room. A great example of gorgeous, easy-to-customize homes that fall into this category are the new townhomes built by PSW and listed by Craig Browning, REALTOR®. You can view them all HERE.
2. Energy Efficiency
With building codes mandating higher standards for gas emissions and reducing needless waste, more and more properties are being built to run efficiently. Additionally, builders have finally begun to realize the importance of green living among today’s home buyers. Eco-friendly homes result in lower utility bills, cleaner air and clearer consciences. There are currently multiple homes listed in the brand new Alamo Heights’ neighborhood, Green Way, certified efficient by Build San Antonio Green.

3. Fewer Repairs/Less Maintenance
When you buy new, you are truly receiving a turn-key property. Contemporary finishes, floors, lighting and appliances means no replacement costs needed in the near future. In most cases, builders even warranty these homes, agreeing to take care of repair work required in the first year (or more). 2210 Camelback listed by Janet Heydenreich, Broker Associate, is a gorgeous new Alamo Heights residence, just off of N. New Braunfels Avenue.
